Kami Guildner: From 2020 to January 6 in the US and into 2021 – Episode 181
This is a different sort of Extraordinary Women Radio today. It's a solo episode. I had recorded this episode earlier this week, and it was all set to go out this morning on Thursday January 7.
However, in the midst of the happenings at our nation’s capital yesterday, I could not in good conscience release this episode – which I feel is still relevant as we step into 2021, without first recording a new intro to reflect on what happened in our country yesterday.
So you will get two parts. The first six minutes, I will warn you: I get political. This is not a political podcast. But today, as a woman in America, I could not leave this unsaid. We have big problems to solve in our nation and the only way we can do this is together. Today I have to take a stance and give voice to my sadness, my anger and my disgust for what happened in Washington DC yesterday - for what has happened in our nation in the past four years.
The second part of this episode, I move into a solo episode of my own reflection on 2020, and how we as women and entrepreneurs can step up and lead in 2021. It's time.
In this Episode:
Tune back how 2020 is filled with wisdom, gifts, growth, and expansion despite the crazy times
How 2020 is not all about pivot but shift and expansion—not only for Kami but also in her community
Growing a business in a downturn
Expanded and meaningful connections despite limited physical interactions
The power of following your intuition
How 2020 magnified circumstances that were long overdue to shift
Leadership as the center focus in 2021 (Lead like a woman with grit and grace)
It took courage to produce this episode, especially today's added intro. I love talking about entrepreneurs, women and all the topics we usually cover here. Today, it needed to be something more. Thank you for tuning in.
May you find some fire, inspiration and step into this new year with purpose. Thank you being a part of my tribe and community and tuning into all the extraordinary women interviews I get to do this year. Thank you for giving me the space to listen to this solo episode. I don't do these often - and it was time right now for me. Shine your light.
“You have gifts that are meant to help shift and make a difference in our world.” —Kami Guildner

Cherylanne Skolnicki – Writing the Playbook for Brilliant Balance in Your Life – Episode 179
Today on Extraordinary Women Radio, I am happy to introduce you to Cherylanne Skolnicki. Want to be a rock star at work and at home? Cherylanne Skolnicki has the playbook. As an entrepreneur with a husband and three kids of her own, she knows exactly how it feels to have too much to do and not enough time to do it. It's exhausting, it's stressful, and it can be tempting to just give in to the chaos. Especially in this year!
In this Episode:
Is there such things as real balance
How did everything come up for Cherylanne to be where she is today
How did Cherylanne deal with risk
What actually feels to have work life balance
What is the definition of success
How Cherylanne deals with the judgement and the eyes of people who let her down and how it affects her
Like most children of the 80s and 90s, Cherylanne grew up believing she could have it all. She started her first business while still in high school, and dreamed of one day becoming a CEO. After graduating from Cornell, she went to work for Procter & Gamble where she spent the next 15 years climbing the corporate ladder and managing a portfolio of well-known consumer product brands (one had more than $1 billion in global sales). Despite her demanding work schedule, she still traveled, ran marathons, and volunteered like a boss.
And then she had 3 children. All of a sudden, the unrelenting pace she was running at felt unsustainable. That’s when she knew she had to reorder her life so all the pieces would truly fit - including not just a thriving career and family life, but also a good night's sleep and some time to herself! It wasn't easy at first, but she finally discovered a set of practices that truly worked.
That prompted her to found Brilliant Balance, and her playbook has helped thousands of professional women reclaim rock star status over the last decade. Her company, Brilliant Balance, offers work-life mentorship and coaching programs to help you have a fulfilling career, a thriving family life, and a strong sense of self.
Cherylanne is a sought-after speaker and hosts the top-rated Brilliant Balance podcast. Her work has been featured in Thrive Global, The Huffington Post, Forbes, Women’s Day, and Cincy Chic. She appears on TV news shows as an expert on work-life balance, productivity, and purpose. Cherylanne graduated from Cornell University in 1995. She holds an MBA from the Goizueta School of Management at Emory University. She is a member of the Female Founders Collective, one of Cincinnati’s 100 Wise Women, a Forty Under 40 Honoree, a happy wife, and a proud mom of three.
“The greatest success in the world is the impact that you want to make it in the world.” — Cherylanne Skolnicki
